Tamdhu celebrates anniversary with new release

Ian Macleod Distillers has announced the release of Tamdhu Single Cask Distillery Team Edition, bottled in celebration of the 120 anniversary of the distillery.

Selected by the 15-strong Tamdhu Distillery team and bottled unchillfiltered at cask strength, only 603 individually numbered bottles will be released and was matured in a European oak first-fill sherry butt.

Tamdhu Distillery claims that a range of ages and cask types were sampled including European and American sherry oak, and blind-tasted by the expert distillery team.

Sandy McIntyre, distillery manager at Tamdhu Distillery, says: “The distillery team had a lot of fun nosing and tasting nine samples and voting for their favourites. The final top three were then selected for a blind nosing and tasting and ranked by each of the team members to agree on the winning cask.”

The choice was a European first fill sherry butt, which has aged in Tamdhu’s traditional dunnage Warehouse Number Five.

Sandy McIntyre continues: “This cask is something to savour and enjoy over a prolonged period. I would expect this bottle to be opened on special occasions when you would share a dram, or two, with close friends and family or even just to keep for yourself – selfish, perhaps, but who can blame you!”

Tamdhu 120 Anniversary Single Cask Distillery Team Edition is a distillery exclusive available at, RRP £250/70cl bottle.
